brown 'marker like' stains on clothes

Posted by Christina511 (My Page) on

I have a 4 year old Kenmore front loader tumble Action Washer. Recently I have seen stains on my cottons that look as if some wrote on the clothes with a brown marker (strait lines). Other stains are just blotches of discoloration. These stains do not come out with further washings although they do fade. Not all clothes in the same load come out with stains. Anybody have any ideas?

RE: brown 'marker like' stains on clothes

I can think of 2 things that may be a cause....well water, or the machine is dispensing the detergent and/or fabric softener directly onto dry clothes.
